| Born in 1974 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Neil Aitken was raised in Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, the United States, and Canada. He has lived in a wide variety of communities: from small farming towns in northern Saskatchewan to the industrial districts of Taipei City. Over the course of his 30 years, he has been a farm laborer, an artist, a missionary, a university student, a math tutor, a computer games programmer, and now a graduate student.
Since moving to California, he has become an active participant and regular feature at many poetry readings throughout southern California. His work has appeared in Inscape, Anagram, and Prairie Poetry. He recently started work on an MFA in Creative Writing at UC Riverside where he serves as the assistant poetry editor of their new graduate journal, CRATE.
